Task Force to Improve Access to Legal Counsel in Civil Matters

The Connecticut Bar Association supports the findings of the task force. The recommendations offer a series of steps that can be taken immediately to help civil litigants most at risk of being denied adequate legal assistance. The focus on restraining orders, child custody, and evictions targets the state's most vulnerable citizens.

The task force responsibly addresses the added societal cost of offering these additional legal services with a series of funding recommendations and by laying out a multi-year strategy for wider implementation.

The CBA congratulates former President Bill Clendenen and UConn Law  School Dean Timothy Fisher for their leadership.
